The Wish List

North Shore Animal League America provides state-of-the-art care to upwards of 350 homeless dogs and cats at any given time. In order to provide this high quality level of care, we rely on the generosity of our donors to ensure that we have the tools we need to respond to the varied needs of our pets. By donating specifically to the purchase of a much needed item from our Wish List, you can help us fulfill a need and do a great service for the animals that we serve.

Examples of Wish List items include:

Mobile Unit Generator:
Our Mobile Adoption Unit #7 has been a key member in our mobile fleet since 2007, and has made a huge difference in the lives of animals not just in the New York area, but all across the nation. The mobile unit currently needs a new generator to stay on the road. While the engines for these mobile units can run for over 450,000 miles, their generators have a much more limited lifespan. In fact, the generators are really what keep our mobile adoptions and rescues going. They keep the mobile unit cool on hot days, warm on the cold ones, and also keep the lights on so we can continue our mission any time of day.
Average Cost: $20,000

Humane Relocation:
Be a hero to dozens of animals by sponsoring a rescue from a municipal kill shelter or commercial breeding facility. Your generosity will allow us to fund a round trip rescue on a North Shore Animal League America Mobile Adoption Unit and you can take pride in knowing that you personally helped save the lives of these homeless pets who would otherwise have been destroyed.
Average Cost: $5,000

Infusion IV Pump:
This device mechanically regulates the supply of IV medicine being administered to a dog or cat.  It ensures that a consistent amount of medicine is being supplied at regular intervals and is less stressful for the pet receiving care.
Average Cost: $1,300 each

Oxygen Cage:
This device allows us to provide a calm and oxygen rich environment for pets in our care that are receiving treatment for severe respiratory ailments.
Average Cost: $15,400 each
